Four-time Grammy-nominated, multi-Platinum singer-songwriter Jewel has announced her first new studio album in seven years, Freewheelin’ Woman due out on April 15 via Words Matter Music/BMG.

The follow-up to Jewel’s self-produced and critically praised 2015 album Picking Up the Pieces, Freewheelin’ Woman presents Jewel’s boldest and most unbridled body of work to date with production by Butch Walker (Taylor Swift, Gavin DeGraw).

Recently, the Alaskan native shared her brand new single ‘Dancing Slow’, featuring Train, who she’ll join on their North American summer 2022 tour kicking off June 8.

Detailing the new single, Jewel explained, "'Dancing Slow' is ultimately about the ebb and flow of life, and cherishing those moments of certainty that are shared when you’re with a trusted companion. It feels like time slows down for a moment. I'm so glad Train was able to join me on this track, with Pat Monahan's sweet vocals adding another layer to the melody."

“I cut my teeth on singers like Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan and got into those Muscle Shoals records a little later on, and for some reason that’s where my voice and my writing wanted to go on this album,” said Jewel, who recorded the album with a live band.

On Freewheelin’ Woman, Jewel embodies an irresistibly elated mood. A passionate mental-health advocate who struggled through a period of homelessness as a teenager, Jewel has been working alongside her Foundation, the Inspiring Children Foundation, for nearly two decades to provide mentorship and mental-health resources for at-risk youth. During the pandemic, Jewel expanded her outreach to help those in need build community and connection and, in turn, protect against the silent symptoms of COVID-19: anxiety, depression, and isolation.

Jewel has also partnered with SaksWorks to bring mental health to the workplace. Together with her Foundation, she is creating a curriculum for wellness to create a better work environment.
